Question about Hard Modes in General

So a couple of friends and myself have recently hit 50, woot, and are trying to work our way into Hard Modes. My question [regarding Black Talon specifically (heard it was the easier to start in)] do you get only 1 "Tionese Commendation" per run or multiple? And does doing the "Bonus content" in Hard Modes change the number of commendations that you get upon completion?

Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

I only got 1 commendation after my first BT hard run. We did the bonus boss as well.

I've no idea if later Flashpoints give more than that. It's too little in my opinion, considering how much Tionese gear costs... It would be actually faster to just skip that set altogether.

I have spent 150 for a game and I'm okay with this

You end up with a ton of Tionese crystals/coms once you start doing the dailies and such. I have over 40 commendations & 140 crystals that I haven't used, and I've only done a few of the dailies and heroics. You do get a lot from raiding also.

The Tionese gear is pretty... not good. You're better off just going through heroics for drops (esseles and tarel V) and doing PVP for your first gear. Or just go raid if you can get the people; that is the best way really.

we are pretty much goin that route minus the PvP factor. Gunna get some epics crafted for each of us, plus farm the bosses that we can. We pretty much all HATE PvP passionately so it may just have to take a bit longer.
